The inaugural roster for Orlando City SC’s USL League One (formerly USL D3) side, Orlando City B, is set, and the team’s focus as a development side for Orlando City’s first team is evident in the ages of the players. 

There isn’t a player over the age of 23 on the roster. There are 22 players on the roster and six were signed from Orlando City’s development academy. The average age of the team is 19 and a half years old and the youngest player on the team is 15 years old. 

“We are very excited to work with this talented group of young players,” said OCB general manager Mike Potempa in a statement. “We’ve worked extremely hard to sign athletes we believe have the potential to one day play for the First Team utilizing our professional training environment and the competitive match structure within USL League One.”

OCB plays its first match of the season at home against FC Tuscon on March 30. OCB will play its matches at Montverde Academy, where Orlando City’s development academy is located. 

The 10-team USL League One is in the third tier of U.S. soccer.
